Bermuda U17s claim win over Dominican Republic

Bermuda 3 Dominican Republic 1

Bermuda Under-17s women's national team made a winning start in the final round of the CFU World Cup qualifiers with a 3-0 victory over the Dominican Republic in Haiti on Saturday.

Goals by Eva Frazzoni and Zahra Gibbons handed Aaron Denkins' side a two-goal lead at the interval although Dominican Republic reduced the deficit in the 76th minute.

Bermuda, who finished runners-up behind group winners Puerto Rico in the previous, restored their two-goal cushion when DeShae Darrell scored in injury time.

Denkins' team take on group favourites Trinidad and Tobago, who thrashed Grenada 10-0 on Saturday, in their next game today.

Bermuda Football Association National Academy director Richard Todd said: “Next up for Bermuda is Trinidad who steamrollered their way through the last round by defeating US Virgin Islands 13-0, Antigua 4-1, and St Kitts 7-0.

“This will be a real test and measure of where our girls rank in the Caribbean.”

The top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals to be played next Friday.

The final and third-place game will be played on September 29. The two finalists from the Haiti tournament will participate in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers scheduled to be played in Jamaica from October 30-November 9.

USA, Canada, Mexico, hosts Jamaica, Central American qualifiers El Salvador and Guatemala will await the two CFU advancing teams.
